When the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his clothes and said, “Am I God? Can I kill or restore life? Why does he ask me to cure a man of his skin disease? 1  Certainly you must see that he is looking for an excuse to fight me!” 2 

NET © Notes

tn Heb “Am I God, killing and restoring life, that this one sends to me to cure a man from his skin disease?” In the Hebrew text this is one lengthy rhetorical question, which has been divided up in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “Indeed, know and see that he is seeking an occasion with respect to me.”
